the budget deficit will drop below $1 trillion for the first time during obama's presidency. the congressional budget office which assumes that federal spending cuts will go into effect march 1st says the government will run a deficit of $845 billion this year compared to last year's $1.1 trillion shortfall. but the cbo's ten-year outlook predicts those improvements will not last. it warns that an aging population will drive up entitlement spending and rising interest rates will put the debt at unsustainable levels. if current laws remain in place, debt by 2023 only ten years from now will equal 77% of gdp. that's roughly double the 39% average seen over the past 40 years. >>> and president obama is asking lawmakers to take quick action as a march 1st deadline approaches that will trigger deep spending cuts. "the new york times" writes this morning that "mr. obama, who missed a deadline this week to submit his annual budget to congress, acknowledged on tuesday that a broader deficit agreement is unlikely to be reached by the march deadline. he provided no details about the t
about deficits, we are buying in to the right wing mantra somehow deficits are killing the economy. look at great britain and doing with their austerity plans and doesn't add up. i'm much more of the mind to be proactively looking at infrastructure investment like many of the business advisers told president obama should happen. people from commerce, from industry. i get it. that won't happen as long as house republicans are dead set against it. and what we're left with is unfortunately in my view a detente to put the discussion in the frame the republicans want. what about deficits? we have a jobs crisis in this country. not a deficit crisis. to me, the whole conversation has been pushed to the right further than it should be. >> and karen, on a last note, in anticipation of the president's speech, the white house released numbers on the people affected by the cuts. i believe around 600,000, between 600,000 and 800,000 suffering as a result of cuts to food stamps and other program that is people need to survive these days and at least some of the analysis out there, democrats feel that

families. and that means a balanced package that will reduce our long-term deficit and debt, but that still allows us to invest in those things that we need to grow right now because that's also a deficit reduction agenda that's growing faster. and in order to have a balanced package that means that we've already done a lot of cuts. we've done some revenue now, and so the rest of the way moving forward we can do some additional reforms and make our health care programs work better and make them more efficient, and we can cut out programs that we don't need, but it also means that we've got to be able to close some tax loopholes and deductions that the average american cannot take advantage of, to raise the revenue, to actually do the job in a way that allows us to continue to grow. now, the reason this is relevant is because i gather and i haven't gotten this from first-hand sources, but from second hand sources in the press that our friends on the other side of the aisle, their position is we're concerned about the sequester. we recognize that just cutting the federal spending with the mea

an economic value of negative $16.3 billion. that is basically a deficit in its capital reserve because of mortgages continuing to go bad. but one fha critic, ed pinto, of the american enterprise institute testified today by his analysis the fha is actually short by more than $50 billion. so critics say that this means the fha is headed for a bailout but, fha supporters say that the critics are hyperventilating. >> if the fha were a private financialness stigs likely somebody would be fired, somebody would be fined or the institution would find itself in receivership. instead it is merely merrily on its way to becoming the recipient of the next great taxpayer bailout. >> i don't think there are many independent people think we're looking at the next great bailout. yes, the fha is little bit of an issue at the moment because of its countercyclical mission, by the way it was part of a their original mission to come in during the difficult times. they did that and they are in trouble because of it. >> reporter: house republicans got legislation through congress last year to try to reform t

and the deficit and debt crisis, everyone is entrenched in their positions and sitting back and saying, i think sequestration is going to happen. you know who is going to take the brunt of it. the across the board nature of the cuts are going to hurt our ability to train and maintain, vehicles, ships and airplanes and the things that provide the readiness for our military are going to take a dramatic cut and we'll have done nothing to reform the way we spend money and put our country on a sound physical track. >> of course, pete, as we talk about cutting back, our enemies are ramping up and you see north korea doing more testing and iran moving possibly closer to nuclear weapons. do our enemies overseas pay attention to our budget woes and our plans here at home? >> sure they do. they look at our capabilities. they look at our disposition. they perceive us differently when we're perceived to be drawing back and pulling away from the world and cutting our capability. so, what happens in washington is watched very, very closely and that's why we have to demonstrate our commitment to maintaining t

and how we reduce the deficit and what tax plans we will have, how we are going make sure that every child is getting a great education and doctorate is encouraging to me that you turn out well by mom not letting you watch tv. i will tell my daughter that is when they complain. in the midst of all these debates, we must keep that same humility that dr. king and washington and all our great leaders understood at the core of true leadership. in a democracy as big and diverse as ours, we will encounter every opinion. our task as citizens whether we are leaders in government or business or spreading the word, to suspend our days with open hearts and open minds. to seek out the truth that exists in an opposing view and find the common ground that allows for us as a nation and a people to take real and meaningful action. we have to do that humbly for no one can know the full and encompassing mind of god and we have to do it every day and not just as a prayer breakfast. this is now our fifth prayer breakfast and it is always a wonderful event. i do worry sometimes that as soon as we leave the pra
party cares about, deficit and other things. i don't think he does. i think they give him a pass on this because he is hispanic and he would go along and be in strong shape for 2016. >> the man who wrote the article said marco rubio has been able to walk the line or bridge the gap between traditional republicans or establishment and the tea party and then he's been able to do that because i like the line, he said that he speaks conservative as a first language. >> that's absolutely true. i do slightly disagree with what bob said, that's the reason why they're going to give him a pass is because he's hispanic. i don't think so. i think to your point, it's because he's incredibly persuasive and able to finally bring people together. if you listen to him go around and do those talk radio interviews with some of his most ardent critics last week, i mean, not just talk radio, but people on the very far right, they have come his way. he's very persuasive. i thing i love is he's not persuasive about the dumb stuff. he doesn't comment on dumb stuff. these hearings have elevated him. you

the deficit, but it shouldn't just be on the backs of seniors. it shouldn't just be on the backs of young people. >> professor, do republicans not realize that they are protecting the interests of massive oil companies and their profits and potentially throwing the poor into abject poverty? >> if they look at the data and look at the facts, i would say they would absolutely have to acknowledge that. you know, this is kind of a tricky situation, right, because the sequester was never meant to be put into policy. it was meant to sort of threaten politicians to make policy that could be more efficient and a little bit more balanced. a lot of people criticizing this president would not working on behalf of the poor or defending the poor. when you look at the draconian cuts you just listed at the beginning of the segment, those things all attack and undermine the economic and food security of poor people in this country. what's interesting about this whole sequester piece though is that the kind of cuts that we actually need to get in the military are somehow in some ways represented here. so
understand that, yes, we need to reduce the deficit, but it shouldn't just be on the backs of seniors. it shouldn't be just on the backs of young people who are trying to get a college education. it should not be on the backs of parents who are trying to give their kids a better start in life. that all of us have to participate and that, in fact, it's important for us to make sure we've got a strong national defense and that we reduce our spending in a smart way. those of us who are luckiest in the society to close a few loopholes and deductions that the average american doesn't get. if that's the choice that we've got, i promise you we can win that debate because we're on the right side of this argument. i hope -- i expect that you guys will be with me on that. last point i'll make, obviously economic growth is a priority. making sure that we're opening up opportunity for everybody is also important. that's why emgregs reform is so critical. i said this is going to be a top priority and an early priority of my administration. i am heartened to see republicans and democrats starting t
